Registered to Hamilton Cemetery Trustees. On April 17th 1838, Benjamin Lett, an Irish Canadian rebel who was a supporter of the Mackenzie Rebellion, and a group of saboteurs set off an explosive blast at the base of Brock's Monument causing irreparable structural damage. The bodies of Brock and Macdonell were disinterred from the vault and reburied in the Hamilton family cemetery in Queenston. On October 13th 1853, Toronto architect, William Thomas, started construction of the new Brock's Monument. It was completed in the autumn of 1856. The 56 metre tall tower was completed in 1856, and inside had a 235 step circular stairway. At the top of the tower is a small twelve foot diameter observation deck/pod. At the beginning of the construction of the new monument, the remains of Brock and Macdonell were dug up from the Hamilton cemetery and reburied in a vault underneath the monument.
